Late Lamented Mor Julious Elias Metropolitan, the Patriarchal delegate founded this church in 1936 for fulfilling the spiritual needs of the people of Syrian Orthodox faith in Chennai and nearby places.
This Church is situated in the heart of Chennai city (2 km away from central railway station & metro station) and presently is overseen by His Eminence Mor Osthatheos Isaac, the Metropolitan of the Diocese of Mylapore under the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church.
Considering the convenience of the IT professionals, nurses, students who live in the metro city, the service timings have been rescheduled as stated below.

On Sunday:

Cordially inviting all to participate in the Eucharistic service and in other prayers and be blessed.
